Half-muffled following the service of remembrance for No. 16796 Pte. William Edgar Holmes V.C., 2nd Bn., Grenadier Guards, on the centenary of his death. He is buried in Carnieres Communal Cemetery Extension, near Cambrai.
"For most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty at Cattenieres on the 9th October, 1918.
Pte. Holmes carried in two men under the most intense fire, and, while he was attending to a third case, he was severely wounded. In spite of this, he continued to carry wounded, and was shortly afterwards again wounded, with fatal results. By his self-sacrifice and disregard of danger he was the means of saving the lives of several of his comrades." London Gazette, 26 December 1918
